The general counsel at TBC Corp., parent company of auto repair company Midas, has received a two-year stayed suspension after working as an in-house lawyer in both Florida and Texas while suspended in Ohio for failing to satisfy continuing legal education requirements.
In an opinion issued last week, the Ohio Supreme Court said that it “by no means condone[s]” Brian Maciak’s nearly seven-year failure to complete the state’s biennial CLE requirements. But “the specific and narrow facts of Maciak’s proven misconduct [and] the substantial evidence of his good character and remorse” warranted the punishment, the court added. Disciplinary counsel had urged the court to issue an unstayed suspension from the practice of law, while the Board of Professional Conduct recommended the two-year stayed suspension that the court ultimately imposed.
